Braving the Waters

Overnight snow failed to stop a plucky band of swimmers from enjoying the now annual New Year’s Day dip in icy sea water. About ten hardy people, dressed mainly in t-shirts and leggings, welcomed 2010 by wading into the North Sea to raise money for Saltburn Animal Rescue Association (Sara).
Association chairwoman Ann Prosser said she was amazed that, despite the bad weather, more than 50 supporters also turned up to cheer them on. A beach collection raised £80 for the association, which will go towards the Foxrush Farm Sanctuary and Rehoming Centre in Kirkleatham Lane, Redcar.
"As an animal sanctuary, we would not manage without the generosity of the public and we are so grateful for that.”
